The Carducci Quartet is recognised as one of today’s most exciting young string quartets. Winners of the Concert Artists Guild Competition in New York, the Kuhmo International Chamber Music Competition and major prizes at the Bordeaux, London and Osaka competitions, the Quartet has established an enthusiastic International following. Based in the United Kingdom, the quartet holds residencies at Trinity College of Music in London, Cardiff University and at the Cork School of Music in Ireland. The Quartet was short-listed for the 2008 Royal Philharmonic Society Chamber Music Award and other highlights include their Carnegie Hall début, a complete Bartók quartet cycle, broadcasts for BBC Radio 3, RTE Lyric FM and BBC television and performances at the Wigmore Hall, Washington Library of Congress and at their own festival in Highnam.
The Carducci Quartet’s international engagements have taken them to the United States, Australia, Japan and Europe including multiple stops in Spain, Portugal, Denmark, and France. In 1997, after performing numerous concerts at the Castagnetto-Carducci Festival, Italy, the Quartet adopted the name “Carducci” with the blessing of the Mayor.
